Asbestos Exposure in Dearborn, MI

The city of Dearborn, with a population of more than 98,000, is the eighth largest city in Michigan and occupies 24.4 square miles in Wayne County. Dearborn is home to Michigan's leading tourist attraction, The Henry Ford, which is recognized as the nation's largest indoor-outdoor museum entertainment complex. Dearborn is also the world headquarters of the Ford Motor Company, as well as the campuses of the University of Michigan and Henry Ford Community College. Among Dearborn’s largest employers are Oakwood Health System, Ford, Severstal North America, Dearborn Stamping Plant, and Visteon.

Historically, Dearborn is known as a major automotive manufacturer as well as an industrial center for steel processing. An integral part of Henry Ford’s River Rouge automobile complex is Severstal Dearborn (formerly Rouge Industries with the steel operations trading as Rouge Steel Company), which has been in the steel manufacturing business since the early 1920s. The Rouge complex, originally part of the Ford Motor Company, was created as an integrated manufacturing plant to produce all major vehicle components at one large facility. Severstal Dearborn remains a critical and valued supplier to the automotive industry while expanding to serve other markets as well.

Dearborn’s diverse history of manufacturing, particularly within the steel and automobile industries, makes asbestos exposure an ongoing concern for workers. Those exposed to asbestos may be at risk for mesothelioma cancer and other asbestos-related diseases. You should know that mesothelioma law firms represent people from Dearborn, Michigan who were exposed to asbestos and have been diagnosed with mesothelioma.
